‘I Didn’t Know Divorce Ends Marriage’

A British woman has tried to sue her former lawyers for failing to properly explain to her that getting a divorce would end her marriage.

Jane Mulcahy claimed her lawyers were negligent because they didn’t take into account her Roman Catholic faith in providing marital advice. 

The Independent reported the devout Christian wanted to avoid a divorce.

She claimed the two solicitor firms should have recommended judicial separatiIon – a step away from full divorce – as an alternative course of action.

The bizarre case had already been rejected by the court, but was revealed in the transcript of a later appeal by the claimant against the dismissal of other aspects of her case.

The appeal was also dismissed.
